Why Lentil Cheese?

Lentil cheese is a fantastic choice for those who want to explore plant-based alternatives. Made from red lentils, this cheese not only provides a good amount of protein but is also rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. With its creamy texture and subtle earthy flavor, lentil cheese can be used in a variety of dishes.

1 cup of red lentils
2 cups of water
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons of nutritional yeast (for a cheesy flavor)
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of turmeric (for color)
Herbs and spices of your choice (optional)
Cook the Lentils: Start by thoroughly rinsing the red lentils. Cook them in water until they become soft and mushy. Since red lentils cook faster than other types, they are perfect for this recipe.
